Your prayers are such an encouragement as we head into the summer! Below is a list of several items to keep you informed of the most pressing needs right now. God bless you for your partnership in our ministry to Maryland's political community!
The calendar is filling up with meetings with legislators, pastors, donors, and other interested friends. Please pray for effective times to share in the lives of these the Lord has called us to serve.
Pray as well for Bible studies that are still being written and sent out to legislators and staffers even though the session has ended. To see the study that will be sent out this week, click on the link to the right of this email ("Jesus, In His Own Words"). Pray that these notes will be a spiritual help to those who read them.
While we're grateful for God's financial provision for this ministry, would you pray for more monthly donors to join with us? The need is great and there is more to be done as we are able to cover the expenses. We are currently operating at a significant deficit, so we appreciate your prayers.
Pray for our State Director in Missouri, Paul Meinsen. Paul was in Joplin the Sunday those tornados came through but was kept safe. He is now organizing an effort with churches and legislators to help with the many needs for those who lost so much. Let's all lift up Paul and others to the Lord who will have physical and spiritual impact on the devastated families in Joplin.
What a blessing it is to have confidence that friends are supporting us in prayer. As always, keep us in the loop with what you and your family are doing so we can pray for you as well!
State Director, Maryland
